Object Hunt

Our Twitter-based scavenger hunt in NYC leads to the ultimate design giveaway, and an iPad!


As design’s savviest scour the streets of New York City this weekend in search of the best in global design, they may also spot white sticker silhouettes of iconic objects. Called Object Hunt, the city-wide initiative comes from a group of design sites (yours truly included) who teamed up to make and distribute the stickers, awarding one lucky person who twitters a picture with the hash tag #objecthunt with a two-night stay at The Standard L.A., a Dwell on Design home tour, and an Eero Aarnio toy puppy. Multiple entries are welcome but each entry must be for a different found sticker and the contest runs through 18 May 2010. And, for one more twitterer who finds and tweets one of our bugs, we’ll hook them up with a shiny new iPad enclosed in one of the custom cases we made with Speck.

We’ll be tweeting clues all weekend long, along with our fellow organizers, a roster that includes Notcot (who spearheaded the whole thing), Sub-Studio, Apartment Therapy, Design Milk, Moco Loco, The World’s Best Ever, and Design Glut. Make it easy on yourself by following the Object Hunt list.
